Happy Winter Solstice and welcome to the shortest day and longest night of the year... perfect for reading... and even more perfect for a dark, spooky story!
Down the ages people have loved telling ghostly tales by the fireside on nights like these, and therefore it is my absolute pleasure to bring this one to your door....
Hidden Company is now available on amazon as a paperback or Kindle. If you opt for Kindle it will be delivered directly to your device first thing in the morning, and you will be among the first to read it. The paperback, however, is available now... albeit on a separate page, hence the different link.
Before I go any further - thank you hugely to US artist Scott Radke for permission to use his incredible sculpture on the cover, and to designer, Gina Dickerson, for the artwork. Also a huge thanks to Raven Wood, a traditional witch based in North America, for her invaluable contribution... thank you, my dark one!
A dark psychological thriller set in a Victorian asylum in the heart of Wales.
Warning - contains highly disturbing material!
1893, and nineteen year old Flora George is admitted to a remote asylum with no idea why she is there, what happened to her child, or how her wealthy family could have abandoned her to such a fate. However, within a short space of time it becomes apparent she must save herself from something far worse than that of a harsh regime.
2018, and forty-one year old Isobel Lee moves into the gatehouse of what was once the old asylum. A reluctant medium, it is with dismay she realises there is a terrible secret here - one desperate to be heard. Angry and upset, Isobel baulks at what she must now face. But with the help of local dark arts practitioner, Branwen, face it she must.
This is a dark story of human cruelty, folklore and superstition. But the human spirit can and will prevail...unless of course, the wrath of the fae is incited..

I hope you enjoy the winter reading, and if you are on facebook please do drop into the launch event on Friday 28th at 4-7pm GMT. We are having an online party - with author guests Shani Struthers and Gina Dickerson offering signed copies of their books. And traditional witch, Raven Wood, is offering a necromancy tarot reading to one lucky/brave winner! I will also be giving away three signed copies of Hidden Company, and one person will win the music I wrote this to. Oh, and there are a few surprises in store too.. https://www.facebook.com/events/189121298609677/
I wish everyone a Happy Yuletide, happy reading, and a great New Year. I will be moving house in January, then getting back to work on the next book... It will be called, Forbidden, and I'm starting the research as soon as I've moved.
Thank you to everyone who has supported me and written reviews for the Father of Lies books, The Owlmen and The Soprano. You keep me going! Thank you!
